First, make sure you are using the correct type of paper for the printer. Some printers, for instance, can not handle glossy paper. Next, lift the front & back covers of your printer and look at the rollers; they look like long metal rods with black rubber wheels spaced across them. Check to see they are clean and no build-up has occurred. I cannot tell you how many roller assemblies you have in your printer, but if you have checked them all and the problem still occurs, it could be due to an internal obstruction or failing motor/spool assembly.

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time


Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

The paper jams up when the printer pulls it into print


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed throught the printer. The reason for this, in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Faulty paper pick-up & tracks down the length of the paper


This problem is caused by a slippery paper pick-up roller. Because the paper slips, it "arrives" too late in the printer mechanism resulting in image shift or paper jam.
You can see this gray rubber roller by removing the paper tray and the imaging unit and turn the printer on his back. Sometimes it helps to "clean" the roller with some sandpaper (take care to remove all small particles!) and/or clean it with some liquid (white spirit, thinner etc.)

Good luck!

Took a can of Blow Off (dust remover) and blew through paper track, and used a paper towel soaked in Isotope Alcohol and rubbed the tracking rails..
Everything seems to work fine for now except the canister paper holding is not feeding properly and the paper is getting jammed when you try to use it. This is not that important as long as paper can be fed the normal way and it doesn't jam..

Landscape copies get stuck


The roller may have something stuck in that area, something even as small as a peice of paper can continue to make it jam. if not, you may have to call the company to get a repair guy in... umm... or repairGirl?
